Did You Know?

Trivia:

Founding editor of "Texas Monthly" See more »

Trademark:

A character in his screenplay is technologically dependent but is cast into a situation where he must rely on his instincts and intuition, rather than his technical know-how (Cast Away (2000), Apollo 13 (1995), Planet of the Apes (2001)). This is based on his experience as a Marine infantry lieutenant in Vietnam.
